A Grateful Dog

Fanny the farm dog in her kennel in the yard one night when she was woken by a burglar creeping towards the house. She gave a warning growl. The burglar tried to make her a friend by throwing her a piece of chocolate.

Fanny loved chocolate, but she knew something was wrong, and growled louder. The thief threw her another piece, but this time Fanny began barking furiously. Her master woke up, and poked his head out of the window, holding his shotgun. The burglar ran as fast as his legs would take him. Fanny hadn’t forgotten who fed her every day, and she knew that was better than two pieces of chocolate.
